To determine whether you’re running the latest version of FileMaker, navigate to FileMaker Pro > About FileMaker Pro… from the top menu bar (Mac) or Help > About FileMaker Pro (Windows).
This screen will tell you which version of FileMaker you are running. Take note of the number after the “v”, in this case, “v3.”
You will see a list of available software updates. Again, take note of the number after the “v” in the most recent version on the page.
Compare the most recent version with the version you are currently running. In this example, you are running FileMaker Pro 13.0v3; the most recent version is 13.0v9. To upgrade to the most recent version, simply download it from FileMaker’s website and run the installation process.
